Neighbour asking for lifts and favours all the time

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a neighbour who really annoys me, she asks for lifts and favours all the time. I don’t mind the one off but with her I feel like she is using me and the thing with me is I can’t say no to anyone. What should I do? I am very stressed.


A: Tell her that your husband has got some work and if he consents then you will not mind giving her the lift.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
